Heavy is the head that wears the crown, and it’s obvious from Fable III’s opening that it won’t be long before it’s weighing down yours.
You play the sibling of the current, overly cruel king of Albion, and you’re quickly catapulted from the castle into a life of RPG rebellion achieved by winning the support of the general populace. As heir to the throne, there’s only one place you’re heading with that sort of behaviour.
Yet exposing Fable III’s endgame is no spoiler: not only is your fitness to rule taken for granted by everyone you meet, but the game has already been out for half a year on every other platform but ours.
Fable’s fights can be approached with firearms, magic or melee weapons, but jumping between the stances is far from intuitive if you’re using mouse and keyboard. You have to scroll between styles with the mousewheel, which makes your combat changes the result of planning, not brilliance.
